Open Closet: Kiran Rai of Sir Alistair Rai
August 01, 2012 | Style & Beauty
Kiran Rai, the New York-based creative director behind celebrity-beloved brand Sir Alistair Rai, spends time out East and travels extensively come summer. Great accessories are key in Kiran’s on-the-go wardrobe, especially flexible pieces like scarves. Indian-inspired pops of color and intricate patterns also take center stage, as do vintage accessories. Below, Kiran opens her closet in a unique way, laying her clothes out as if planning to pack for a trip, and shares on her summer style secrets.
"My summer style is definitely beach chic—relaxed, flowy, and comfortable clothes. Scarves are essential during the summer because I can wear them as sarongs and skirts at the beach, but can also throw them on as wraps on cool summer nights or even wear as a dress and style with a great belt."
